ABOUT THE SAMUEL H. KRESS FOUNDATION

The mission of the Samuel H. Kress Foundation (est. 1929) is to sustain and carry out the original vision of founder, Samuel H. Kress (1863-1955). The Samuel H. Kress Foundation supports the work of individuals and institutions engaged with appreciation, interpretation, preservation, study and teaching of the history of European art and architecture from antiquity to the dawn of the modern era.



ABOUT THE HENRY LUCE FOUNDATION

The Henry Luce Foundation seeks to enrich public discourse by promoting innovative scholarship, cultivating new leaders, and fostering international understanding. It advances its mission through grantmaking and leadership programs in the fields of Asia, higher education, religion and theology, art, and public policy. 

The Foundation’s American Art Program, a leader in arts funding since 1982, supports museums, arts organizations, and universities, in their efforts to advance the understanding and experience of American and Native American visual arts through research, exhibitions, collection projects, and publications.

ABOUT THE TRUST FOR MUTUAL UNDERSTANDING

The Trust for Mutual Understanding was established in 1984 by an anonymous American philanthropist as a private, grantmaking organization dedicated to promoting improved communication, closer cooperation, and greater respect between the people of the United States, the Soviet Union, and other countries in Eastern and Central Europe. TMU’s program reflects her conviction that grantmaking can make a contribution to that process by supporting international face-to-face contact and professional interaction. 

The AAMC Foundation is grateful to the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, the Henry Luce Foundation and the Trust for Mutual Understand for their generous support of the 2020 Conference Travel Fellowship Program.
